About the Book

Kontra and Bida are sibling monkeys. But they are as different as night and day. Kontra works for the cruel, greedy, and corrupt Big Boy Buwaya, the leader of their animal kingdom. Bida tries to save her brother from Big Boy Buwaya’s influence… but will she succeed?

One day, tragedy strikes in the kingdom, making everyone think about their deeds. But in the end, goodness rules once more over the community. Truth, justice, unity, and hope prevail.

Si Kontra, Si Bida at si Big Boy Buwaya is the first in-house publication of BASA (Bayan Akayin sa Abot Tanaw). It was written by multimedia personality, celebrity endorser, and children’s book author Christine Bersola-Babao, and illustrated by Martin Malabanan. The story was translated and edited by Christine Bellen, a children’s book author, playwright, and faculty member of the Ateneo de Manila University.
